He has never been in trouble with the law (that I know of) and he is released after this? That really sucks.

I know a lot of people hate on him, but I'm a huge fan of Chad Johnson and I always have been. I know it might be too late for him to get on with another team at this point and that is a shame.

I believe that leaves Naanee and Hartline as the starters on the outside with Bess in the slot. Poor Tannehill. Bush coming out of the backfield helps though.

Yeah, it does suck. I think he's always kept his nose clean until this weekend. Philbin is just setting the tone for the team. It had to be done, even if it kinda sucks.

I hope this isn't the end of the line for him. I like the guy, personally.

First he pissed off the Phins HC by cussing at press conferences. THen he smacked a *****. Hit the the bricks Ocho.

Having physical ability is great, but Chad is still really immature as a human being.

Well we don't know what happened for sure as far as his wife is concerned. She got injured but whether he headbutted her or she headbutted him is unclear.

He seems like a guy who could have played well for a longer time had he not turned into a crazy person. If I was advising him, I'd tell him to focus on trying to get another shot with a team, and not all the other bs he distracts himself with.

If Chad just had his priorities in order and wasn't always joking around he could have been one of the best of all time.

Why do people still associate with people that are willing to press/file charges against them?

Whoever the athlete hangs out with should know the far greater consequences of police involvement yet they do it anyways.

The problem for Chad is that he's one of those guys that got by with a really hard work ethic and elite talent. He isn't one of those "know the playbook and outsmart you" guys.

His team mates have to tell him where to lineup and stuff. He's really talented and probably knows more about football than me, but he's not competing against me to make a team.

Sad to see this happen. He is a big attention guy but he has never been a negative personality. So many stories about him flying out fans to game and taking theaters full of people to the movies.

There is no excuse for domestic violence in any case but I'm not sold on what happened. Who just up and headbutts a woman? Maybe I think they were arguing in their car and somehow knock heads. His statement to the police was that she headbutted him apparently

I don't know why we are all assuming that Chad is innocent either based on how we don't know either of them. Fact of the matter is, he was accused of domestic violence; that's pretty severe.

Also, trust me; they wouldn't have cut him if he was looking like his former self either. NFL teams have no problem sweeping criminal acts under the table if the player is good enough; sad but true.

This board has a pretty disturbing habit of immediately blaming the woman in domestic violence or sexual abuse situations.

Not to say that I'm assuming he's guilty and that we shouldn't wait for more facts to come out.

Yeah really, I mean; I agree we shouldn't rush to judgment in the chance that he has been wrongfully accused. That possibility always exists. I just don't get why people automatically assume that it's a set-up because she's a "reality star".

But the Dolphins are a business, not the law; therefore they can do what they want if it hurts their brand. If Chad Johnson was a 1,200+ yard receiver again; this would've been "investigated" by the team internally for a longer period of time.

Honestly I just like the guy so I'm hoping for the best and trying to rationalize. Hitting a girl is never acceptable. If he hit her, then throw the book at him. We really just need to wait for more details as others have said.

Chad was on a 1 strike policy (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/12/chad-johnson-was-on-a-one-strike-arrangement/)with the Dolphins so its no surprise he got the boot so quickly

She's filing for divorce after six weeks of marriage. Wow after one heated argument she's ready to hit the bricks.

After six weeks of marriage, Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce from Chad Johnson, NFL.com confirmed Tuesday.

On the heals of Johnson's arrest on a domestic violence charge, the "Basketball Wives" star filed documents with Broward County Court that categorized her marriage to the former Miami Dolphins wideout as "irretrievably broken," according to TMZ.com.

Johnson was arrested Saturday for allegedly head-butting Lozada during a "heated argument" over a receipt for condoms found in the couple's car.

One day later, the 34-year-old wideout was released by the Dolphins, part of a rapid freefall for the 11-year veteran.

Yeah, granted she got hit, and that's never good, but at least try to fix it. If she ever loved him, then make an attempt at least. One bad event 6 freaking weeks in to a marriage and she is bailing.

I mean, he allegedly had condoms (which obviously means they were fighting over infidelity if it happened) and he allegedly headbutted her. For most people, being cheated on and then assaulted when confronted; would usually be the death knell for a relationship.

Just so everyone knows, Chad Johnson is just as much of a reality show star as she is. Dancing With The Stars, T.Ocho Show (am I the only one who remembers that by the way?), having a reality show based on his love life, and the now-cancelled project. I think it's rather unfair to call Lozada a "reality star" in a negative connotation when Chad is just as guilty in that department.

You can always make more money. Kim Kardashian made 18 million dollars last year. TV shows, advertisements, modeling, etc, all of that comes from publicity.

She funded her dolce business with the Antoine Walker's money, now she can keep her reality tv celebrity status alive through her notoriety with Chad Johnson.

It's business.
